Gilligan's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Gilligan's Story...
Meet Gilligan! He is a Pekingese and Lhasa Apso mix who weighs about 14 lbs. He is estimated to be about 2 or 3 years old. Gilligan came to rescue from a local shelter and feels great after a much needed haircut! He was a very good boy for his haircut, even though we knew that he was in some pain due to the matting he was licking the hand of the groomer. He is such a silly little dog. His face is just too cute and he can usually be found rolling around on the hardwood floors to scratch his back or playing fetch with his squeaky toys.

Gilligan is very affectionate with his foster family and good with his foster siblings; he also seems to be fine with cats. He is however weary of strangers and strange dogs. He is looking for a home where an experienced dog owner can provide him with gentle but firm leadership; someone who is good at training dogs or is willing to work with a trainer to improve Gilligan's tolerance of strangers. At this point, Gilligan can only go to a calm home with little coming and going. Gilligan would do best in a single-family home with a securely fenced in yard.

If you are interested in finding out more about Gilligan, please fill out an application. Gilligan is being fostered in Somerville.

The adoption fee is $375.

Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable, so for most of the dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gilligan, a Worcester Lhasa Apso/Pekingese dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Lhasa Apso/Pekingese for sale in Worcester, or seeking a Lhasa Apso/Pekingese dog from a breeder in Worcester.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Worcester already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Worcester breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Lhasa Apso/Pekingese breeders who help with Lhasa Apso/Pekingese rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Worcester paves the way for another one to be saved.
